"October in Cascade Springs, New York means tourists are pouring in for the annual Food and Wine Festival, and Daisy hopes to draw those crowds to the store. She asks Violet and the local writing group, the Red Inkers, to give a reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the shop's back garden to entertain the revelers. Everyone eagerly agrees. Yet their enthusiasm is soon extinguished when Violet discovers one of the writers dead during the event. After the shop magically tells Violet she'll need to rely on Poe's works to solve the murder, she enlists the help of her trusty tuxedo cat, Emerson, and the shop's crow, Faulkner. But they must act fast before someone else's heart beats nevermore...."--P. [4] of cover.

I liked this one more than her first book. The mystery was well-sustained and along with the froth and charm of the fantastical bookshop, there were plenty of plausible red herrings before who actually dunit was revealed.

If you love books, bookstores, and magic, you'll really love this cozy mystery series. This is the 2nd book in the series and they are both excellent. Enjoy!!!
